Where: Underhill Avenue, Brooklyn
Who: Teunis G. Bergen
Why: Teunis Bergen, is being commemorated with a school and street name (Bergen Street, Brooklyn), because he was a U.S House of Representative member from 1865 -1867. He also served in the New York State Militia in the rank of Colonel.
I used to live on Bergen Street as a child. I never knew that the street was actually a dedication to someone. I just happened to by walking by this school and noticed the sign. This is quite interesting to know.
